Forget the Fantastic Four – meet our Elite Eleven

Forget the Fantastic Four – meet our Elite Eleven

Our team of eleven motivated Year 11 students travelled to Boston College last week to compete in the annual Elite Eleven Competition where Spalding Academy finished 4th out of the whole of Lincolnshire.

Elite Eleven is a mixed inter-school sporting competition that involves 12 secondary schools from across Lincolnshire who compete against each other in a variety of indoor sporting challenges. 

The competition took place at Boston College’s Peter Paine Performance Centre with challenges based around reaction speed, memory, agility and fitness plus sports activities such as power cycling, crazy golf, New Age Kurling, football targets, netball shooting and table tennis rallies.

The aim of the competition is to battle it out against other schools to win the most points whilst also testing the student’s commitment, teamwork and motivation.

At the end of the competition and before the results were announced, there was an inspirational talk from local bodybuilder and personal trainer Josh Blue.

Mr Michael Duggan, Head of PE at Spalding Academy said “The Year 11 students performed really well on the day scoring particularly well in the netball shooting, reaction challenge and the Illinois agility test. The team were impeccably behaved all day demonstrating some really good teamwork, sportsmanship and competitive spirit. Well done to everyone involved.”
